In the UK versions the nunchuck scene when Kuji meets Nora & Harry is cut. In the 1986 EIV Video (cut by 31 secs) the scene is completely missing. The later 1995 NTV video featured a longer print and the introduction of the weapon can be seen, though 10 secs were removed from the rest of the sequence. See more »
Wow, what a perfect Saturday afternoon B-movie! It has that very rare quality of B-movies, in that is is both aware and unaware of its campy status. Seriously, as the amazingly varied collection of characters adds up (river-rat, scientist, robot, ninja, cavemen, Roman soldiers, and on) you will never be bored. The special effects are just cheap enough to make you smile, but not so cheap that you won't feel satisfied. And there's a nice finish that really rounds out the whole experience. There is a lot to like, for kids or B-movie lovers, but somehow it never degenerates into the lesser-desirable qualities of the "so bad it's good" genre. It is an honest and successful attempt at comic-book entertainment. And really, you have to see that Mobile Unit in action! How cool is that?!?!
